As the picturesque gaucho of the Argentina pampas rides herd over his cattle and sheep, so the administrators and teachers of Brackenridge High School are Hin the saddle!! directing and guiding the activities and studies of Brackenridge students. The friendly care and counsel of our Hfacuity friendsn help to guarantee that none of the group will stray from the herd. The gaucho, similar to our cowhoy, wears a poncho fa piece of cloth with a hole in the middle for the heady, spurs, a hlaclc, stiff- hrimmed hat tied under his chin, a leather apron on his left thigh, and always carries a Iasso and a long, sheathed knife in his heit. Living on his horse, he traverses the rolling treeless plains, called pampas, tending his herd. Life on a great cattle plantation, or estanciero, in Argentina is f - cinating. The landowner lives in the great house, which may he I' e a Spanish palace, surrounded hy parks and grazing meadows. O some of these estancieros where ostriches are raised eir rs, the gauchos enjoy hunting this fleet hird with hcl , ong strong leather ords with round stones on the end, which, whe rown with accuracy, firmly around the legs of the ostrich.

WEBER MRS. H. O. WAHRMUND Page 19 With a membership of 572, our association has used the general theme, "Preparing Youth for Economic Efficiency," in its programs. These programs have been presented by outstanding citizens of the community, teachers, members, and students. Recognizing al- ways the spiritual and aesthetic value of music, some individual or group of school musicians have performed at each meeting. Our welfare department has made it possible for numerous boys and girls to remain in school. In conjunction with our "Parents Visiting Night," meals were served in the cafeteria, which financed in a large measure our year's activities. Our President, Principal, and Dean of Girls attended the State Convention, we were likewise well represented at the District Con- ference. Since our city is l942 hostess to the National Convention, numerous members are serving on local committees for this meeting. We sponsored a beautiful and fitting party and program for the I-Ionor Students, purchased a war bond, gave defense stamps as our prizes for the graduation dress contest, sponsored a Girl Scout Senior Service Troop, organized a canteen and engaged in much other individual war work. All our efforts have been toward the preservation of our priceless American heritage for our children, and all children everywhere. -Mrs. Manfred I. Gerhardt. eaunde ' Friendship is the basis upon which Brackenridge runs. The planning and directing of vari- ous activities shows our princi- pal's unselfish devotion to the Welfare of the student body. lt is Mr. Gary's belief that or person must be both dynamic and adaptable. Here we see the plan for his own success. ln accordance with this belief, he advises and helps the stu- dents With their difficulties. The cooperation of the office staff, the vice-principal, and the dean of girls With our principal in taking care of the problems pertaining to the discipline and guidance of our students is certainly the keynote to the efficiency and complete co- ordination at Brackenridge High School. Pfmclpal Mm Mala fllaaae Page 20 Page 21 aiench Through the sincere friendship and helpfulness of Miss Moore, 1 many girls solve the various problems which confront them. As Q X, our dean of girls, she believes in a definite plan of Work. The effi- 4 ciency of her office staff is an example of this. Her own hard Work Q g and loyalty have contributed much to building up the character, culture, and citizenship which she considers so important in Brack- 7 enridge students. ' Mr. Kay, vice-principal and advisor to boys, is both understand- ing and tolerant. He believes that the elements of success are determination and perseverance. lt has been because of these characteristics that he has risen to his present position. His belief in the honesty and integrity of the student gives us a confidence in ourselves which We may use to bring honor to Brackenridge in future years. Credit must also be given to the office assistants who have helped to keep the excellent routine system.

Telephone calls, special excuses, changes of programs, rechecking of subjects-just a few of the many activities that keep the offices of Brackenridge High School constantly "buzzing" with activity. Here democ- racy flourishes, for in the offices of Brackenridge High School, many capable hands and minds are re- sponsible for the efficient Work that is a requisite in operating a large American high school. Here a truly "democratic" Way of operating a high school is practiced, for many students themselves are given the op- portunity to assist our very capable office staff in performing the numerous routine office activities, and these students can have the feeling that they have had a part in keeping our school "running smoothly." 6 ofgfzacke ' e 5 P e30 I X S l S X ff, ss 1 Miss Moore registers an- other B.

The vast undeveloped natural resources of this oung hut growing nation are essential to the welfare of this entire he isphere.

O thou, kind Mother of the countryless, Into thy arms the streams of vagrants pour, Those whom the world has scorned in bitterness, And driven from her hatred-tainted shore. But thou wilt welcome all and lift thy light, To guide the homeless wanderer in the night. Here may the prisoner cast his chains aside, Here may the children laugh beside thy sea And ring the wild air with their merriment, In spaces that are measureless and free. Here too, the peasant now may raise his face, And find his long-sought, happy dwelling place. Star-crowned Freedom kneels beneath thy chair, Her guardian eagle perched upon her hand, And Tolerance, in Christly robes stands there, The balm of nations in her shining wand. High waved above, thy crested banner's blue, With blazoned stripes that pierce the dawning through. America, upon whose mother-breast Stand villages, with steepled churches spired, And chains of hills and jutted mountain peaks Long-stretching lakes in rosy sunset fired- Wide plains of space and fertile valleys lain, Sweet to the taste of sunlight and the rain- God bless thee, Land, kind Mother, long-sought Dream, And keep thy plains and hills within His arms, To shelter all who flee the Tyrant's sword, The clash of steel, and Misery's ghastly forms, Here keep thee still a Light for all who weep, A land of hearty work and quiet sleep. -By Alice Rilling.

With earnest endeavor, they conducted a membership drive which was very successful. At the end of the drive a social was held for paid-up members. The first formal dance that the seniors gave was the "Santa Swing" in December. Two informals which the class sponsored were the All School Prom and February Frolic. With the arrival of spring came the long awaited Senior Picnic. Under the capable hands of Fred Williams, the picnic was all that anyone could desire. ln April the senior play, Once and For All, was given under the direction of Miss Ieston Dickey. lt was a howling successl The last undertaking of the class of '42 was a formal dance on May lst. The climax, of course, was the Baccalaureate Sermon and Commencement Exercises. Thus, amid sad good-byes mingled with laughter, three happy and successful years were con- cluded.-Lillian Hagopian. my ' Class Sponsors A Miss MARY coLEGArE nf K 0,1 ,mega Miss LUCILLE WHARTON Page 36 SE NIORS Page 37 ,fx A ACKERMAN, GEORGE 5' f AIKEN, LOTTIE: Purple Iacket, Glee J gl es., Adv.

America, you are the dream Ot the men who died for you, They cleared the torests, they built their homes Under skies of deepest blue. Through the years they struggled bravely For our heritage ot love, 'They gave all they had to save you, They were led by God above. And now in spring or summer's heat, Or in Winter's icy blast, Your lovely snow-capped mountains gleam as Brightly as your sacred past. From your stately hills and forests To your plains so tlat and Wide, There are men Who will defend you, They are men Whom God Will guide. Democracy must never diel We must tight 'til treedom's Won, We gladly sacrifice our pleasures, For our duty must be done. -Phyllis Hampton. Page 58 Q C25U5"i"wf 95561211 8 .

Not Pictured: Lorraine Anderson, Sgt.-at-Arms, Sue Hickerson, Eepgrter. loyous friends of sophomore days, newly arrived topthe dignified state of juniors, gathered together in September to start another year. We noted with regret the absence of some who had been with us the year before, but looked forward with eager anticipation to forming friendships with the new boys and girls. Officers who were elected last spring, headed by Bill Wahrmund, took charge. Our first activity was a dues drive with Logan Smiley urging everyone to, "hurry up and pay that money!" The drive ended in November with a social for all paid members. The success of this affair goes to Donna Lou Orndorff and her commit- tees. The Iunior Prom, which was the first dance the class had sponsored, was held Friday, February 13, in the gym. With the theme of black-cats and other paraphernalia associated with spooks and hoodoos, tuned to the tempo of Rex Preis and his orchestra, and with the new fluorescent lighting, it proved to be the hit of the year. Patricia Staffel was the head of this affair, and to her the credit for the success of the dance belongs. We are saddened at the thought of separation but we know that we have formed friendships this year that will always endure to enrich our lives.-Sue Hickerson. 'qui' SQ Class Sponsors T ,.

The first big event encountered occurred in April when a good time Was had by all at the Sophomore Picnic. Although this picnic was given mainly for the Sophomores, the other classes were represented by many students. In May the class Went a step ahead of most of the previous Sophomore Classes by giving a dance which also proved successful. The class has now completed its first successful year and is looking toward the future years at Brackenridge with great anticipation. -Tom McGee, oo ' 7X V f X X Class Sponsors Joy MMS X MISS ELSA BURG iyyh Miss cHR1sriNE LAWRENCE SoPHoMoREs For if Q Top Row E .rw E-- ADAMS, Nelalice, ALEIANDRO, Gloria, ALLEN, Billy, ANDERSON, Charles, ANGER' 4? j oltlllulgs, BALDERAS, lack, BARNES, Bessie Mae, BARNES, lean, BARTON, Bessie, BAYLOR, Elizabeth.

D. S., the question we are debating is....l And Pardo 3 is taught to speak. We all pose for a pretty UD picture. The Brackenridge Debating Society began its year in September with a small,.hard-working group. All of the empty places in the club were filled quickly with a large representation of the outstanding boys in Brackenridge I-ligh School. With such members, the B. D. S. was certain to have a successful year. After the new members had been inducted and had been entertained by a social, a regular series of debates was started with all members participating. The most outstanding debater is to receive a cup for his debating ability. With such renowned speakers as Israel Rabinowitz, lack Anderson, Bill Wahrmund, and Elmo Ferguson involved, the contest promises to be a close one. The annual Spring Formal was made a private affair. The entertainment committee, with Melvin Koenig as chairman, planned a program dance to be held at the Cos House in La Villita. All of the trimmings of a formal program dance, invitations, printed programs, evening dresses, flowers and punch were abundant. The dance was a huge success with members, dates, and guests all enjoying them- selves immensely. Much of the credit for the success of the club this year must go to Mrs. Winifred Kupper and Miss Betty Ieanne Dobbins, our two splendid sponsors. -Dell Davis, Billy Gerhardt.

We have had many of our usual activities, such as our installation ban- quets, red, White and blue pompoms for the teachers on Armistice Day, and many other good times. In addition to this, however, We have dispensed With many of our more costly activities and bought a United States Defense Bond with the savings. We feel it is necessary for everyone, regardless of how small the amount may seem, to contribute to the great cause for which We are fighting. We also realize it is important to keep the morale as high as possible and continue in a truly American spirit to enjoy life as We live it. Instead of our many small functions, We have put our combined efforts into making our annual "Rose Day Tea" for the faculty successful. We have enjoyed this year as much, if not more so, because of our greater cooperation, closer contact, and the necessity of getting more value out of smaller things. Because of this greater need our standards of the club have been raised. fThelma Zimmer. FALL TERM I ONICE FEILE ..,,.........,.,.. Pres. MARGIE PARKER ....,.,. THELMA ZIMMER ,....,.

This is the musical part of the Charme Club. All the members gather around to have a picture "lf you have it Ccharml, you don't need anything else-and if you haven't it, it doesn't much matter what else you have," is the Watchword of the Charme Society of Brackenridge High School. The chief purpose of the society is to encourage its members to be Well-mannered and charming. Charm in the classroom, in public places, in business, at social functions, in dress, and general rules for being charm- ing are discussed, studied, and promoted by the young ladies in the organization. A Well-balanced social program, consisting of an annual Halloween Party, a Christmas Social, and an Easter Picnic, is thoroughly enjoyed by the members. The yearly club banquet is the highlight of the Club's social activities. The regular semi-monthly meetings also prove to be very interesting, profit- able, and enjoyable. During the past year the Charme Chorus has come into existence. The girls have entertained several National Defense Service Organizations throughout the city. The unique feature of the chorus is that its accompaniment is furnished by several accordionists who are members of the club. The Charme Society is individually different in that it is the only club in the school with a uniform. The uniform consists of a blue and White jumper dress. -Virginia Riegel. 7fze Gfzalame Social' Pge78 lust as the people of the United States realize that to maintain friendly relations with Latin Amer- icans we must be of service to them, the Commercial Honor Society hopes to cement our friendship to Brackenridge by being of service to our school. This society was organized in the spring of '39 with the object of keeping in touch with the members after they enter the business world and of cooperating with the commercial teachers so that the courses taught at Brackenridge may prepare the students for jobs in the constantly changing business world. Students superior in shorthand, bookkeeping, typing, or other commercial subjects qualify for mem- bership. Each candidate must have attained four credits in the commercial field and must have at least three A's in two commercial subjects. In May a banquet is held honoring members. At the banquet all members who make few errors at a speed of fifty words or more a minute are awarded certificates of proficiency. Surely, this organization will never lack friends as long as its activities are a service to our school. -Patricia French. PATRICIA FRENCH ...., ,.... P res. BETTY BELLIS ...., . , , ,Treas.

This year the Garden Club was particularly active in beautifying the Brackenridge Campus and the Brackenridge area by sponsoring a sale of Gladioli and Ranunculus bulbs. Then, too, the Garden Club, in conjunction with the Delphinium Club of I-Iighland Park, planted Anemones in front of the school cafeteria. At La Villita the Garden Club donated and planted 500 Ranunculus bulbs and two fine rose bushes, and later held a party-dance there with the Iunior Historian Club. When the Flowers were in bloom, the members of the Garden Club returned to La Villita followed by a tour of the River Beautification Project and the Alamo Gardens. The annual event of the Garden Club, the Braclcenridge Flower Show, was again held with its usual success and splendor. This array of "Springs best" is shown in order to bring us all in Contact with those things of beauty that we in these crucial times are so apt to forget. With a calendar packed with fun and service, the Garden Club continues to be one of the clubs that is making Brackenridge a more socially and culturally prominent school. -Leon Tolle. if ' 0 ai , Ss Page 80 l fu Jzialgm em The Los Hidalgos Club was organized in l92l, with the purpose of furthering interest in Spanish customs, manners, and language.

This year our social activities consisted of the freshman party given at the beginning of the fall term for the incoming sophomores followed by the initiation banquet. Christmas was celebrated with a party typically Spanish, along with several parties and dances to celebrate the succeeding holidays. We honored our graduating seniors with a banquet in May.

They are really melodious, unless you get close enough to hear them. The German Club, one of the oldest clubs in Brackenridge, was organized about fifteen years ago to create fellowship, friendship, and good will among the German students and to give them experience in speaking German. Soon after school started in September, Miss Richter gave a party at her home for the new mem- bers. The Thanksgiving celebration was held at the home of the President. Walter Ives was the host for our annual Christmas party. Our annual custom of giving cookies to the teachers of Brackenridge was followed. We held our Easter picnic at Koehler Park. The final party was one for the Seniors held at the home of Miss Richter. We have had two cake sales, one for the benefit of the club, the other for the benefit of the German paper which was started by the German Club more than a decade ago. We have also helped in Na- tional Defense by buying defense stamps. Our year book, the cover of which was designed by our club artist, helps convey the thought of triendship among the club members. Our scrap book helps bring back memories of all the good times we have had and we realize the friendships we have made will remain with us always. 7fze Q' Glad Page 84 '7fze 61145 S1 if In keeping With its policy to help familiarize its members with the industries and points of interest in San Antonio, the Progress Club has held a large number of its meetings in the form of group visits to various manufacturing firms and institutions of the city. Thrpugh these visits the members have learned something of the Working conditions and production methods in these industries. By design- ing and constructing Wooden toys for distribution to the underprivileged children by the Fire Depart- ment and in assembling first aid kits and splints for local first aid classes, the boys have taken part in the civic and defense enterprises of our city. The club also took first place basketball laurels in the club league, and as a result several members became players of the school team. Near the end of the school year, the annual fun frolic of the club, consisting mainly of too much to eat, is held at some "back to nature" out-post of civilization, which is entirely ignorant of the part it plays in the lives of American youth. -lohn lones.

The object of this society is to foster a united effort on the part of the members toward pure Americanism, closer fellowship, better command of English, the ability to express one's thoughts, trained leadership, correct parliamentary usage, high- er literary ideals, and a greater school spirit. Our motto is "knowledge is greater than wealth" and our emblem is a small gold-bug. Our flower is the exquisite violet, a symbol of faithfulness, and our colors are purple and gold. Members of the Gold Bug Short Story Club are limited to a certain number, elected by invitation. Several weeks following the election, a private initiation is conducted in room 3l4, under the super- vision of Miss Wimberly, the sponsor. After the Pirate Ceremony, which is an old tradition, the mem- bers repeat the object of the club, and close with a pledge to our flag. Then a picnic, which is held at Roosevelt Park, is given in honor of the newly elected members. Medals are given each year for the best written short story, oral short story, and legends. To the winner in the Texas Legend Contest a gold star is presented by the Hertzberg Iewelry Co. 7fze Gal! Bag 0 we qw Buy cw In addition to varied programs each week, Mr. Gary, Mr. Kay and Miss Moore entertained the Gold Bugs with jokes, talks, and helpful discussions. Of course, these programs were enjoyed by everyone because of their interest and educational value, During the fall of l94l, the Gold Bugs enjoyed a picnic in Roosevelt Park, following the initiation of the new members, a party which included a scavenger hunt, held at the home of Marjorie Hohon. Our Christmas Party, the annual pound party, was filled with laughter as the girls were given presents by an anonymous Santa Claus. This spring, the members of the club enjoyed a bowling party, a Mothers' Day Tea, a hay ride, and a banquet held at the Milam Cafeteria. Thus, after a full year of picnics, initiation, banquets, parties, contests, and other activities, the Gold Bug Club looks back With regret that the wonderful year of work, fellowship, and fun is ending so soon. A tribute must be paid to the President, Helen McNulty for her unfailing, capable and guiding leadership. Miss Wimberly, our sponsor and friend, has, by her helping and capable hand and guid- ance, aided in helping the Gold Bugs carry on traditions of the past. -Gloria DeBord.

To promote defense by furthering education is the object of the Herbarium Club, organized in October, l94U, with Miss Pagel as its sponsor and interested Botany students as its members. It Was reorganized in October 1941 for the purpose of preparing and mounting leaves for use in the Botany classes. Each girl made at least two mounts at every meeting. The mounts were made of heavy White sheets of paper covered with cellophane. Pressed leaves were placed inside these mounts. At the end of each meeting the refreshment committee served refreshments such as cookies, candy, and ice cream to the girls. To complete the term activities for the entire term, a picnic was given at Koehler Park on April l6. Bicycling, horseback riding, and strolls in the park filled the afternoon for all present. To top it all off, hot dogs, fritos, potato chips, potato salad, cup cakes, and cold drinks were served to all. A final business meeting concluded the Work for the year. 7fze 6 ui Page 7fne M The Purple Masguers Club elected a fine group of officers to carry forth the feeling of good cheer and friendliness that their former members have created. The purpose of this club is to promote a greater interest in drama and bring about a friendly feeling toward our Latin American neighbors. Like other good neighbors, We are often called upon to contribute to the Red Cross and other causes when the demand arises, First We had a cake sale which turned out a great success. We elected new members and honored them with a theatre party. Our next social Was the annual picnic held at Brack- enridge Park. This made us enjoy the freedom We have in our own dear country that some of our neighbors do not have. To close the term we gave our seniors a banquet. To Miss Willie Ray McDonald, our club sponsor, We owe our thanks for her splendid guidance throughout the year. Thank God-We are Americans. -Dorothy lean Iustiss.

Come out from behind that ball, Iimmie. A Hi-Y Club meeting-Wendell Phillips presiding. That's not a monkey in the background. Thats Logan Smiley! iff' If i The Hi-Y Club of Brackenridge High School is one club whose outstanding activities in athletics, social events, and religious projects will live long and be remembered in the hearts of its members. lt is somewhat different in nature from many other clubs inasmuch as it is a branch of the Y. M. C. A. of San Antonio. As you know, the Y. M. C. A. is an institution that has been created to promote the spiritual, physical, and moral life of young men. In seeking membership into the Hi-Y Club, the candidate is compelled to pledge to render service to his fellow members, to his school, to his community, to the nation, to the world, and most of all, to God. The four planks of the Hi-Y platform include clean speech, clean living, clean sportsmanship, and clean scholarship. The main objective of the club is to create and maintain high standards of Christian character in the community. At some of our meetings, outstanding leaders in the business and religious worlds present messages to the boys offering suggestions concerning religious and athletic projects. As a result of these projects, athletic sportsmanship is encouraged and achieved be- tween the various high schools and we deepen our convictions of religion. As do all clubs, the Hi-Y participates in many important educational events such as the Officers' Training Camp, Older Boys' Conference, and the National Hi-Y Convention. ln reference to the Older f I Bwdemidqe .Jia-W 0 X 1 W Boys' Conference which was held in Corpus Christi, Texas, March 7, 8, eight representatives from the club attended. As was reported by Wendell Phillips, Charles Hetherington, Alton Grimm, and Logan Smiley, one exquisite educational and social week-end was experienced. As a result of these conven- tions, the boys in the club decided to make a drive aiming to stop reckless driving around the school Campus and elsewhere. This is perhaps one of the most important and impressive projects of the year which has resulted in improving safety for the students of Brackenridge and civilians. The members of the Hi-Y Club of Brackenridge, too, enjoy many social events. The annual Beat Ieff Prom was presented this year by the I-li-Y as was the gala "Texan's Stomp" presented on March 6. These extraordinary social events will surely be held as high spots in the minds of those that attended. It seems that the club members and their dates went on a hay ride to Castroville, and it was reported that they had a wonderful time. The hot dogs were exceptionally good, but perhaps lay Alkire can explain why they didn't have any weiners. Through the willing and helpful cooperation of our swell sponsor, Mr. Higdon, the l-li-Y has been made the fine club that it is. In characterizing one of the outstanding clubs of Brackenridge, the Hi-Y is one of Christianity, Democracy, and Fellowship. -Fred L. Williams. FALL TERM ' KENNETH STRUWE ...,.,,,....

The junior Historians is an organization of boys and girls who find San Antonio history very signif- icant and enjoy interviewing old San Antonians to find things not Written in history books. The club, under the sponsorship of Mrs. Magruder, was organized last spring. The junior Historian Club is a state- wide organization, the junior division of the Texas State Historical Association. The Club has enjoyed a year full of activities. One of our most interesting speakers was Col Martin L. Crirnmins, who spoke to us on "Twenty Points of Interest Along the San Antonio River." His exciting tales of early San Antonio gave us an inside story of those Texans who had been only names to us. The first inhabitants of San Antonio were Indians, and Mr. George Pickens' speech, illustrated with arrowheads, baskets, knives, belts, shoes, and spearheads from Indian mounds, made us realize that it was not so long ago that the Indians roamed the valley of San Antonio. In February the San Antonio Historical Association invited the junior Historian officers to a banquet at the granary of the San jose Mission. By a huge fireplace a small Mexican woman skillfully patted tortillas to add color to the candle-lighted, high-ceilinged granary. Dr. Pat Ireland Nixon, president of the Association, read a paper on plagiarism in Texas History. To finance the years activities, the club sponsored the junior Historian Harvest Hop in November. Page 92 7fae funiaa all ' ' Another fall activity was the planting of two flower beds at La Villita with the Garden Club. After the planting, refreshments were served at the Historic old Cos House. Again cooperating with the Gar- den Club, we celebrated with a Christmas party at the Cos House. A trip through an old tunnel between the Menger Hotel and the Post Office gave every Iunior Historian a feeling for the past. Marian Yeager and E W. Martin walked off with most of the prizes at the spring party for the Sophomores. One of the most interesting missions near San Antonio is Espada Mission. There by the old aque- duct near the Mission, the lunior Historians had a picnic. How they marveled at the ability of the old Franciscan monks who constructed an aqueduct that is still in use a hundred years laterl Every Iunior Historian anxiously awaited April the eleventh, for on that day the annual Iunior Historian Convention was held in Austin. Each club gave its report and many sparkling ideas were joyfully received. Following this, all gathered for a banquet in the Maximillian Boom at the Driskill Hotel. We were proud to bring home an award of five dollars for having received third place on the radio script contest. After a tour of Austin we left for home, not only full of ideas for our club, but full of appreciation for our state and its historic significance. FALL TERM Bos STAPLETON ..,.. .....

Betty Lou, do you also have boy members? The founders of the Laniers instituted friendliness for their theme, and it is only natural that the officers and members cooperate in work and play. In keeping with the chosen theme, we started the year of 1942 by installing the new members in or friendly manner at the home of Annie McPhail. At this ceremony the new members were familiarized with the requirements of becoming a Lanier. Each officer held an arrow representing the standards a Lanier should strive to uphold. One of the most interesting events of the year was our book week assembly. Annually our as- sembly is given in honor of book week, at which time we present a gift to the library. This assembly is to promote interest and enthusiasm in selecting and reading better books. The theme of our assembly this year was "Information Please." The Lanier members represented characters and titles from books. The grand finale consisted of the members in their respective costumes. The United States and Texas were both represented by their colorful flags which stood on opposite edges of the platform. The pro- gram closed with the cast and audience singing "God Bless America" while patriotic youth was repre- sented by an R.O.T.C. officer and a sponsor saluting the flag. .Ecmiea .Edea S ' 5 P ge .94 .Ecmiea fdmmq I .. For our December social the club had a party at the home of the President. During March a wonderful time was had by the members and their "dates" at the "Buckaroo Bar B Q." The tickets were hand painted on colored paper with western designs in the corners, and tied in gunny sacks. An hour of dancing was enjoyed by everyone before they were called to do justice to a most appetizing Bar B Q dinner. The zoo was visited and bicycles were ridden until the dancing began again. Edna Hoentsch looked cute dancing with Nancy Brauer. Clara Dyrrlich, and losephine Saladino watched. Betty Belle johnson had her fun as usual, only this time it was making poor innocent people pose for a camera that had no film in it. ln May our usual formal tea was given in the home of a member. The old and new officers were dressed formally, and stood in the receiving line to welcome the guests. ln a beautiful ceremony, the new officers were installed. At this farewell tea there were sad good-byes as well as happy laughter, for this ended the enjoyable and busy year of l942. Each and every member treasures the memory of her happy never-to-be-forgotten Lanier Days. 'Betty Lou Rutledge. FALL TERM BETTY LOU RUTLEDGE ....... ,Pres. PATRICIA FRENCH, ......... V. Pres.

' Ut On a bright and early spring morning the Modern Dianas were found frolicking through the Woods. They were patiently Waiting for breakfast to be served, and their appetites grew as the aroma of coffee, bacon, and eggs filled the air. Several of the girls were busy showing the rest how well they could cook. The Dianas were merely keeping up the tradition of the club which is to develop good sportsman- ship and skill in outdoor sports. The sunrise breakfast at Koehler Park was only one of the many ac- tivities indulged in by the lively Dianas. Our social program of the year consisted of such thrilling sports as skating, horseback riding, bowling, and having pleasant parties. When weary from strenuous exercises we find compensation in the fun we get out of doing them. One of our most important events of the year is the formal initiation that is held in the early part of fall. This year gracious Patricia Staffel was our hostess, and we had a gay evening at her colonial style home. The installation of officers in May was a very nice affair also. New members are chosen in the fall and in the spring, and the day new members are elected one may see a room filled with excited girls. 7fze Medan fbianffi Chaney, Chiodo, Clevelan .96 xx f 7!ae Medan fb ' . . We select a certain number of girls from all of those attending school who rank high in scholar- ship, leadership, and charm, these being the qualifications we require of all our members. The girls chosen are known as Nymphs and cannot vote until they are initiated although they may take part in club activities. Another memorable function Was our cake sale, held in front of the Gunter Hotel which proved to be a pleasure as Well as a profit for us. It has been customary for the Modern Dianas to have an annual dance in May. This year We are rather undecided because We Want to be good sports and contribute money for defense purposes. At this time We are also planning a tea for our kind mothers, Who always help us, You may now readily understand Why We call ourselves Modern Dianas after Diana, the Goddess of the moon and chase. It has been through the tactful guidance of Mrs. Wilson, our club sponsor, that the Modern Dianas have successfully flourished since the club was founded in-1933. Looking clearly through all of our activities you will find that We maintain high ideals and friendship with everyone. As each senior graduates, she Wishes that the years to come may bring members Who will uphold these standards. , -Beatrice Rivas, FALL TERM ELEANOR THOMA ,....,....,.. Pres. LA VERNE CRYER ..........

The development of Brackenridge Chapter Number l26 of the National Honor Society can be bet- ter comprehended when its numerical growth is understood. The Chapter, launched by Principal Mar- shall Iohnston in l924, is now in its eighteenth year. From eight charter members it has grown to an annual membership ot 91. Approximately twelve hundred members have been inducted into the chapter during these eighteen years. Originated and directed by the National Association of Second- ary School Principals, the great National Honor Society has been introduced into all the leading high schools in the United States and her outlying possessions. The society unifies the method of rewarding merit and furnishes a universal means of detecting outstanding students when they enter higher insti- +1 X Jfanafa Susie P ge 98 aifianal Jfanaa tutions of learning. The wearer of the Honor Society emblem, which is non-transferable, finds ready entree to higher creative fields. Elected by the faculty, candidates rnust qualify in scholarship, character, leadership in school af- fairs, and constructive service rendered the school. The National Society presents each member with a neat identification card. Candidates are initiated each year at an elaborate and beautifully costum- ed ceremony. This year a handsome bronze and Walnut plaque bearing the society shield and chapter name was added to the office trophy case. The local chapter functions only as an honorary group, Mrs. B. L. D. Roselle has sponsored the Honor Society since its inception.

The purpose of the Pan-American Student Forum is to aid in the establishment of friendly relations and lasting peace between the American nations. This is in accord With the present policy of the United States government, a policy of vital importance in time of War. This year's club activities have been especially interesting. There was a Sightseeing Tour, a Christmas Party, the usual Mysterious Box Sale, the annual spring picnic, and, in the fall, the State Convention for all the Pan-American clubs of Texas. The Sightseeing Tour, which began With a picnic and ended with a visit to the Governor's Palace, Was enjoyed very much, especially by members Who had never before seen all of San Antonio's many interesting places. At the State Convention banquet and dance the members had the privilege of meeting students from other high schools, and also from some of the colleges of Texas, all very interested in promoting the Work and development of Pan-Americanism. The members of the Pan-American Student Forum feel that the activities of their organization are especially significant at the present time and that students are doing a real service for their country in promoting Pan-Americanism. -Lucille Lopez.

Quill and Scroll has always been the goal set by Iournalism students. It is not ansociety for Brackenridge students alone, but an international society admitting any student ot Iournalism able to tultill the requirements ot membership. The first requirement is that a student qualified for member- ship have at least eighty inches ot printing in some paper or two years ot service on the Annual Statt. This year, under the leadership ot its president, Ieannette Kizer, the Alice Stone Chapter ot Quill and Scroll has tor the first time since its origin in l924, had a constitution. Other activities have been held, including a picnic which was in April. Thirteen new members were added to the roll this year, making a total of nineteen in all.

Ioyce Vance, representing our school, was chosen president of the San Antonio Council for the year. Each school in Bexar County sends a representative, an alternate, and a sponsor. At these monthly meetings, such things were discussed as the making of portfolios for foreign countries, gift boxes for children in War-stricken areas, and nut and candy cups for soldiers and their families in local hospitals. Also, at these meetings, reports are made by the different schools on their activities. Rep- resentatives proudly display quilts, puzzle books, joke books, vases, and ash trays Which they have made for the soldiers in their classrooms. These representatives take back to their school the informa- tion they receive and pass it on in a smaller school council at which there are representatives from each home-room. ln this Way lunior Red Cross Work is spread throughout our county. ln our school the Red Cross Work is done through the Student Council. 'Each representative takes to his advisory the plans and collects the money for the Red Cross Membership Drive and War Relief Fund. The Red Cross Magazine, which is made available by the Membership Drive money, is most in- teresting. This magazine tells of the Work in schools all over the World. Students find much interest in reading this timely magazine. Articles on conservation make students Want to help in their small Way. The activities for the year in our school have been the Red Cross Membership Drive in November, the War Relief Fund Drive in lanuary in which Brackenridge students gave generously, and the mak- ing of afghans and other articles by many advisories in the spring. -loyce Vance.

Our constitution signed with the ink hardly dried, the Shutterbug Camera Club of Brackenridge, backed by our loyal sponsor, Miss Lucille Wharton, comes to the end of its first year of existence. Being Brackenridge's youngest club, the Shutterbug Club is by no means the least active. It is devoted to better photography at school and in the home. One may expect a flash at any time and Wherever there is a flash, there is a Shutterbug. Many a student finds himself in an awkward position when that flash takes place. Of course, photography is not our only activity. We indulge in many social events and other sports. One of our socials Was a picnic at which photography Was the main sport. Everyone was there except the sunl We hold many of our meetings in the dark room-Knot the kind you think, boysl. There We de- velop all kinds of pictures-some with the feet Where the head should be and vice versa. All in all, We have a grand time in the Shutterbug Club. With grateful hearts that We live in a freedom-loving democracy Where We have the privilege of doing and saying as We Wish, the Shutterbugs strive constantly to maintain their goal-that of being better citizens of the United States of America. -Iohn Iones.

The fact that the name of the club or the more frequently used "S.O.S.O." has appeared in local newspapers more than thirty times, may be taken as proof of that. After having been founded on the remains of the "Digit Diggers," the S.O.S.O. began a successful year by acquainting the student body with its purpose. A cake sale helped to provide the cash prizes for a contest in which questions were secured for the first great survey of student opinion. The results of this survey served to "keep B.H.S. informed about B.l-l.S. opinion," one of the clubs purposes. After having been the guests of Miss Morgan at a very nice Christmas party, the members of the S.O.S.O. successfully arranged the first dance of the l942 season. The dance was unique, because students from all the high schools of the city were asked to attend. This was followed by a picture- taking tour and picnic combination at Brackenridge Park. The major events of the S.O.S.O.'s activity calendar were concluded by an immensely successful "old license-plate collection contest," which served the three-fold purpose of conserving metal for the nation's war-effort, providing money for a charitable organization, and making the two winning advi- sories happy with their awards. -Herbert Iohn Spiro.

Well, we are as curious as you- ! we don't know either. The Science Club was organized in 1926 tor all Brackenridge High School boys interested in science. The purpose ot the club being to increase the interest in science among the students of Brack- enridge. The Science Club has been reorganized a number ot times. During the past year, Wendell Phillips and Volney Ellis, with the assistance ot the Executive Board did some excellent work in reorganizing the club and forming a new constitution. This newly formed constitution and the programs are so ar- ranged as to take care of both the scientific and social activities ot our club. Various programs of interest have been presented to young scientists throughout the entire year. One ot the most enjoyable meetings ot the year was the one at which Richard Smith presented a movie of views in South America. Not only has the Science Club been active in science, but it has sponsored several social attairs. The annual picnic along with several parties were some ot the outstanding gatherings of the year. The Ep-Chep Dance, early in the spring, was the climax of a full, well-rounded year. -Alton Grimm and Logan Smiley. ms' cw f Page 106 .MARY IO BELLIS ,,.... Sqt.-at-Arms 'IACQUELYN ALFORD .....,... Parl. gl if In troublesome times such as these, friends are among our most valuable assets. Membership in a club is one of the best ways to facilitate friendship. The Stevenson Literary Club, organized in 1917, is one of the oldest clubs in Brackenridge and well known for the orphans' Christmas party we have sponsored annually for the past twenty-two years. The entire student body contributes financially, but the plans are carried out by our club. The custom was changed somewhat this year. lnstead of en- tertaining the orphans at the Texas Theatre, the program was presented to them at the orphanages. The social activities of the Stevensons have always been successful, and this year was no exception. The new members were welcomed at a Twilight Tea in October, and in November the girls enjoyed a theater party. During February, we collected books for the U. S. O. and were very fortunate to have Mr. Kay speak to us on March ll. As usual, we had our picnic in April and brought the year to an end in May with our banquet at the Milam. -Betty Bellis.

Being duly rewarded and reminded by Miss Viola Moore that the Student Council members are the representative body of Brackenridge, they did not rest on their laurels, but instead Continued their work in earnest as the Student Council has done from year to year. ln other words, they are keeping up the tradition of hard Work for the benefit of the student body and the honor of Brackenridge. Many Christmas baskets were generouslyygiven for the needy in response to the drive sponsored by the Student Council during the Yuletide season. Instead of the annual "Hello Day" which was to bring about newer acquaintances, the Student Council sponsored a "Know Your Neighbor Day" on which small paper airplanes with your name typed on them were sold for a penny, and the money, amounting to 52660, was donated to the "Penny a Plane" Fund. Color Day was a gala occasion when all students Wore their purple and white buttons, ribbons, and pom-poms right before the Thanksgiving Football game. To help conserve material needed by our government, the Student Council started the project of collecting waste paper. Hardly ever can one find a piece of paper in our waste baskets. This drive has a many-fold benefit, as the proceeds have gone to a generous fund for the Red Cross, money for fluorescent lights for dances in the gymnasium, for wood to make model airplanes to aid pupils in fly- 7fae gfacfenll Guang! Kizer Sills 7fLe Slacfenl' enum: ' ing, for material to build a small room to store excessive paper, and money to sponsor the Defense Stamp Drive. None of these expenditures have been wasteful but all proved to be Worthwhile in benefiting the school and the students therein. . Brackenridge Was represented in a number of Student Council Conventions this year. Frankie Bea Woodward attended the Southern Association of Student Governors at Memphis, Tennessee. lack Anderson, the president, Was the Councils delegate at the Denton, Texas, Convention for the Texas As- sociation of Student Councils, March l2, 13, and l4. Discussion groups were held and attended by the other delegates from Brackenridge. Some of the leading topics of discussion Were ill How the Student Council can promote democratic living, Q25 Boy and girl problems, C35 Should grades be based entirely on class Work, and C41 How the Student Council can raise money. Very interesting reports of those three days were given later on in a meeting. A picnic was held at Koehler Park, April 20, for the members and their dates which was a big suc- cess. lt was the annual social affair on which photographs were taken by the officers and members for the annual. All present had an enjoyable time. At that time the executive committee was planning a dance but the plans were not completed in time to announce the date for the dance. --Rosemary Lott. M An bg T ..

Those loyal members who attended meetings make this year successful. The Wa Kapa Club was founded twenty-two years ago by Miss Georgia Armstrong. It was origin- ally called the Library Club but was later renamed Wa Kapa Club. Wa Kapa, in the Indian language means friendship. This year the club with the able assistance of our sponsor, Miss Louise Allen, has tried to keep the ideal of friendship alive and growing. This year's activities started with the election of new members. The formal initiation was held in October in the home of Betty Ann Lockhart. Christmas each year brings around an event dear to the heart of every Wa Kapa member. Mid fun and laughter we decorated a Christmas tree in the center hall. As we hung balls and stars and tinsel, many of the students gathered to give the advice. Even Mr. Gary and Mr. Kay came to their office doors when we consulted them. In the week that followed the amazing thing was that, although crowds swirled gaily through the hall and about the tree, only a few ornaments were broken. Later we carefully packed the decorations away until next year and turned our thoughts to other things-a calendar with picnics and parties. As Miss Allen laughingly says, "Every time we get some money we plan a party and eat up the treasury." 7fze Wa KW em Page 110 7fze Wa KW em In Ianuary a luncheon was given at the Rio Vista Restaurant. At this luncheon the officers of the fall term relinquished their offices to the officers elected for the spring term. This was followed by a game party in our school cafeteria on February 20, which we gave to be- come acquainted with the prospective members. In an impressive and beautiful ceremony seventeen new members were initiated into the club on March 9 in the home of Rose Margaret I-Iolekamp. As they took the pledge, each new member was presented with a lovely corsage. One of the highlights of the year was the picnic given in April for the members and their dates and friends at Koehler Park. Bicycling, chatting, dancing, and boat riding climaxed by a sdmptuous feast ended a day which will long be remembered by the members of the Wa Kapa Club. In May the farewell banquet honoring the seniors was given. This is always an occasion enjoyed by all, yet with an overtone of sadness as we bid good-bye to our friends with Whom we have spent so many pleasant hours. -Betty Ann Lockhart, Ieannette Kizer and Roberta Pugh.

Iust one of the 30 Club's meetings. Last term in The Times Office a unique club was conceived and organized by the hard-working, deadline-beating reporters on The Times. I The club was promptly named the H30 Society" in honor of the traditional thirty mark which means "end of copy." Miss Lena Mae Elliott, sponsor of The Times, agreed to sponsor the Society, and regular meetings began. Immediately after having been organized, the club was divided into two teams. One was named the "Dummies"-meaning the make-up of a paper, and the other was called the "Dopes"-meaning advance information. Maxine Gilliam was chosen captain of the Dopes, while Doris Rae Beard led the Dummies. The purpose of the club was to get bigger and better ads for the Times. Each team adopted its own slogan and theme song-using them as battle cries. A contest then began between the two teams, with a party given by the losing side as a reward to the winners. By the margin of only a few inches the Dummies finally emerged victors. At the end of the term. the club was disbanded as far as the journalism work went, but it has met a few times since then. -Betty Grisham. 748 "so" Swat' Pa, e 112 2 6ff1,sf'J: ,J if.. i' Qi " Mx Q BMJ Sf L KWX ?V1.Qi X , 64217 JM' WWW WW! ? 9jJ 535213 fvfvwj - AMJLMV3- I SWA JAX ,X I int: 'E .Z 33, 5 I X 2 f E 1,1Q.4wf.

The beginners' courses also serve as a testing period during which talents in radio, debate, dra- matics and extempore speech are discovered. Each of the six courses in Speech offers college credit and a student may also major in speech. Motivating excellence in platform speaking is the Texas lnterscholastic League Contest in which B. H. S. has always participated. Declamation and extempore speaking are directed by Mrs. B. L. D. Roselle. Last year Logan Smiley won the city championship in declamation, while Betty Lou lohn and Wilton Biegert excelled in extempore. Wilton finally placed fourth in the state contest at Austin. Doris Zirkel came out as city champion in the Pan-American Oration Contest. This year, Bette Ruth Williams and Logan Smiley were winners in the Pan- American Oration Contest, each receiv- ing awards of five dollars. Represent- ing the school in declamation were Elmo Ferguson, W h o recited "Our Shield of Freedom" by H. H. Schlacht, and Virginia Fullerton, Whose selection was "What ls America?" by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur. Virginia won the City Championship, while Elmo placed second. Extempore representatives for this year were Bette Ruth Williams and Dallas Thacker, who placed second in the city. lnnovations introduced into Speech I and ll this year were the San lac Swing on the eve of the spring holiday and the presentation by Mrs. Roselle of intra-mural trophies of silver B's for the best declaimers in Speech l and the best interpreters of dramatic reading in Speech ll. These new features bid fair to become traditions and have al- ready stimulated tremendous interest in platform speech.

Thus fulfilling the definition of debate, the over-enthusiastic radicals of the debate class began another successful C?l year of philosophical cogitations Cwise thinking'?D. Seriously speaking, however, the debaters worked hard under their very able coach, Miss Betty Ieanne Dobbins, and learned that all their work was not in vain. The debate teams participated in some eight intra-state tournaments during the fall and spring seasons. These were the Austin lnstitute, Taylor, Austin, Baylor University, Yoakum, Houston, Alamo Heights, and San Marcos tournaments. Carolyn Strum, Mary Faith Taylor, Volney Ellis, and lsrael Babinowitz debated in all the finals in these tournaments. Eight teams entered the Yoakum tournament, of which five got in the finals. Five teams entered the Alamo Heights tournament, of which two were in the finals. The girls' "A" team, Carolyn Strum and Mary Faith Taylor, were victorious in the Alamo Heights tourna- ment, which rewarded them with a cup. The San Marcos tournament was the last one attended. Sixteen debaters entered and received exceptionally good ratings. Those who participated with a superior rating were lsrael Babinowitz and Mary Faith Taylor. Those who rated excellent were Volney Ellis, Carolyn Strurn, Logan Smiley, Fay Crawford, Carroll Hawkins, and Donald Berkebile. The debaters cover- ed nearly 2,000 miles, with the boys' and girls' "A" teams Winning over 80 '70 of their debates. Congratulations are in order to those debaters who did so well during their first year of debate. The class is proud to announce that such students as Annabelle Sullivan, Colleen Benson, Imogene Tampke, Max Brunneman, Ed- ward Foy, Delores Halsell, H. P. Butler, , Bobby Snipes, Bob Stapleton, and Alton Grimm make up the group. The class regretted to lose Mary lane Elley, Billy Gerhardt, and Dell Davis at mid-term. The debaters are a self-reliant group who earn the money they spend on debate trips. Through the very success- ful annual "Dancing Meter Prom," the students raised approximately Sl00.00 which has paid their expenses on trips. lf you are eager to reach new heights join the most individual group in Brackenridge-the debaters. -Volney Ellis and Mary Faith Taylor.

Tradition, inspiration, aspiration, and innovation play a great role in the dramatic events of Bracken- ridge High School. Tradition set the stage for "The Purple Parade," that snappy show of three one-act plays which always starts off our dramatic season with a bang. "The Professor Boarsu opened the show, in which the actors were Albert Allee, Iacquelyn Alford, Violet Russell, Anne Hugmann, and Peggy lane Carver. A lively little comedy entitled "Cleaned and Pressed" starred our Brackenridge High School Henry Aldrich, Alphonse Huffaker. Other actors in the cast were Edith Frazer, Paul Graham, Doris Fehrmann, Gloria Maye Pugh, and Ioy Allen. Q The third play-"Star Struck" gave a glimpse of Hollywood and the dizzy way it lives. The actors were Mary Louise Simmons, Betty Belle Iohnson, Lou Sue Cornibe, Dorothy Mosely, Mary Ruth Askin, Frances Lear, lane Baker, lessie Harper and Evelyn Catan. Yes, "The Purple Parade" was a bang in more ways than one. Miss Dickey, our director, was accident- ally knocked down on the stage at the matinee, and suffered a broken hip. "The show must go on," so Miss Dickey came back to the night performance and saw the show through. After a three months' stay in the Santa Bosa Hospital, Miss Dickey came back on February 2. The spring term teemed with all types of shows. Two matinee performances were given by the Dramatics I classes. The following actors, who were contesting for the lntrarnural Silver UB" did a fine piece of work: Frances Bailey, Mary Etta Campbell, Charlene DeViney, Mary lane Elley, Betty Io Elms, lack Fraser, Robert Geisler, Page 116 4 Behind me fwzzrffl l.

The Senior Play, "Once and For All," Was an innovation for Brackenridge. An elaborate stage set de- picting a dead-end street in a large city furnished the background for a good play, Hundreds of B. H. S. students have taken part in our colorful assemblies of 1941-1942. Constitution Day, September l8, inspired the Dramatics classes with ideas for a Constitution Day As- sembly. Tableaus depicting the Four Freedoms, then the "Pledge to the Flag," and "The Americans Creed" all stirred our hearts with a deeper love for our great land. The Lanier's Book Week Assembly took the formf. of "Information Please," whetting the intelligence of the audience with questions concerning good books. 'L A Thanksgiving Assembly and a beautiful Christmas program followed the traditions of Brackenridge. Brackenridge Thespians produced an elaborate pageant celebrating March 2. "Periods of Progress" re- viewed the highlights of Texas history. Page 117 im Seniau 'lense ancf fa-4 Nfl" 1. Mrs. Bilge demands clothes line be removed. Z. The Chorus girls strut their stuff. 3.

An elaborate stage set de- picting a dead-end street in a large city furnished background for a good play. Scenes for "Once and For All" were laid in an apartment courtyard of a big city where several families were brought together in friendship while they shared the fears and hopes, the joys and sorrows of one an- other. The mixture ot crime, sorrow, love, and comedy kept constant excitement in the audience. The cast was composed of the best dramatics students, including George Harcourt, Doris Fehrmann, Frank Scott, Charles Carolus, lohnny Reininger, Lou Sue Cornibe, and Frances Lear. Also Mary Louise Sim- mons, Warren Lustre, Wendell Phillips, Beatrice Luna, Richard Smith, Rachel Fahrenthold, Violet Russell, Kathleen Edwards, Bobbye Sue lackson, lacqueline Alford, lay Alkire, Celia Ellis, Betty Ann Lockhart, Wesley Walker, Rudy Flores, and Elmo Ferguson. So natural was the acting that students thought nothing at all of Frank Scott hugging his mother lLou Sue Cornibel, but how they Ah'd and Oh'd when he kissed Frances Lear, and, of course, the audience thought George Harcourt and Doris Fehrmann were hardest to beat. Another thrill was the fight between lay Alkire and Warren Lustre, when lay knocked Warren head over heels onto the floor. This was as un- expected to the cast as it was to the audience.

The staff chose as its theme, "Friendship," which is so needed with the world in a turmoil as it is at the present time. Having chosen our theme, we immediately began taking class pictures. ln October, we began our successful sales campaign owing much of our success to Eleanor Thoma, who sold l26 annuals, breaking all previous records, and to Martin Iones, who sold 83 annuals. The staff would like to express our appreciation to our many friends in the Student Council and the Debate Class who aided in this campaign. In March the annual began to take shape as we began mounting the proofs of the lay-outs that Alice Neal, Bertha Grundrnann, Grace Ann McCreless and others had devoted hours to plan- ning and constructing. The copy was typed in the dummy by our untiring and dependable typists, Shirley Maierhofer and Lois Littleton, aided by Frances Budge and Iohanna Huey. During our Page 120 Wm .Ea Refama Page successful ad campaign Allene Aszmann and Mildred Smith became champion ad salesmen. The staff has Worked hard all year but our social side has not been entirely omitted. At Christmas time the annual-salesmen banquet Was held at the Original Mexican Restaurant at which time we presented Eleanor Thoma and Martin Iones with silver trophies. When the copy was sent to press We celebrated our relieved spirits with a picnic. In May the annual Was hostess to the gala formal "All-Publications Banquet" Which is held each year by the Times, Hueben und Drueben, and La Retama staffs for the purpose of announcing the staffs of the following year. Our Working side by side and our recreation has created a stronger feeling of friendship among the staff members. We are hoping our humble efforts will serve as a reminder that inter- national friendship begins With each individual. -Imogene Tampke.

Straining harder and harder to reach perfection in The Times, Miss Lena Mae Elliott, sponsor, Betty Belle, and the hard-working staff used a new type of headline in the paper. This new style proved very satisfactory. At the end of the year, in the latter part of May, the traditional All Publications banquet was held, in which workers on all Brackenridge publications participated. The new staff members for next fall were announced, several gold loving cups were presented, and a medal was given to the outstanding B. H. S. journalist of the year. And so, leaving a trail of outstanding accomplishments behind them, the sponsor, editors, and staffs for the Fall and Spring terms of l94l-l942 bade farewell to their beloved publication and went forward to higher fields of journalism, leaving The Times in hands ful- ly capable of raising it to even higher successes. -Betty Grisham and Betty Belle Iohnson.

Due to the cooperation of the staff, the fine guidance of Miss Leilet Richter and the loyal support of the German Club, the fifteenth year of the publication of I-lueben und Drueben has been completed. This German publication presents Brackenridge school life to its subscribers, the German students of Brackenridge and the German speaking people of San Antonio. Each issue had a particular theme, such as the Christmas in different lands, Valentine, Easter, and the Senior issue. The staff consisted of: Helen, our prize go-getter of advertisements, Ora May, the Writer of our more intellectual articles, Francis, Who has received many a bribe, because he can handle the scandal section better than any girl We could have obtained, Leroy, Who is the shyest Writer We have seen, Werner, the Wise-cracking sports editor, and the editor, yours truly.

The Girls' Advanced Glee Club spent a very active year under the direction of Mrs. Ida Collins. Each member enjoyed singing in the assemblies on Armistice Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. The Christmas Assembly Was most outstanding. The Chorus sat in the balcony While tableaux of various beautiful scenes of Christmas Were presented on the stage. The hymns sung by the chorus added to the beauty ot the tableaux. After attending the State Contest and Festival, the chorus Was rated first division, and Eva Io Lawler, our soprano soloist, also Won first division. On our list of activities Were singing at Ir. Federation meetings, Army Post, the U.S.O., and the Army Y. Our Dance and Concert was a big event of the school year. Our garden party tor the graduating seniors Was enjoyed by all. ln the best American Way possible the Vocal Department does all Within its power to show that "Music Hath Charms." With such activities as entertaining on Armistice, Thanksgiving and Christmas, chalked up against them, the Mixed Chorus got a start and soared to Victory after entering the Music Contest at the Spring Festival in San Marcos in April, Winning First Division in everything attempted.

Young What is more completely American than the stirring marches or sober, retiring overtones of a peppy marching band such as that of Brackenridge High School? Each member of the band is feeling more and more his part in the National Defense Program. This mu- sical organization is planning to play, and has played at many defense and civic programs throughout the year, for instance, the Teachers' Convention, Football Games, Iunior College Drive, many parades, the Presi- dent's Ball, and entertaining the boys in the armed forces of our country With concerts of various types. This year the Brackenridge Band, consisting of eighty members, has shown its willingness to cooperate and make a better band by being considered one of the finest organizations ever directed by our alert and competent leader and friend, Mr. Otto Zoeller. lts repertoire includes the "Finale" from the "New World Symphony," "An American Rhapsody," "Em- blem of Unity," and many others of like character. With these inspirational pieces and our dynamic director, the Brackenridge Band is looking forward to coming through with flying colors in the contest, which is, for the first time, a combination of the National and State music meets to be held in San Antonio, May lst of this year. -Glynda Bess Brown.

The orchestra has only 32 members. When music was first introduced in the public schools in San Antonio, the orchestras were the largest musical organ- Dorothy Trebig Dorris Wiedenfeld Ruth Wiedenield Betty Lou Wiggins Marian Yeager Marjorie Zimmer izations, and the bands Were very small. In recent years, however, the bands have become larger, and orchestras are much smaller. Members of the orchestra are more serious-minded about music than are the members of the band. Having a small membership, however, did not discourage Mr. Zoeller and the orchestra. This year the orchestra attended the Orchestra Festival in San Marcos. The orchestra is proud of the first division awarded them at this festival. Ioycelyn Haelbig won first division for a violin solo. The number played by the orchestra was "The Bat," by Iohann Strauss. The Brackenridge orchestra, the Austin High School orchestra, and the Southwestern State Teachers' College orchestra played at the festival. The numbers rendered by the combined orchestras were "The Secret Marriage" and the "First Move- ment" from Haydn's "Fifth Symphony." The combined orchestras also ac- companied a chorus of about 500 voices in a "Love's Divine" program. Besides playing in the festival the orchestra also has played for many assemblies and programs held at Brackenridge. The Purple Parade, the Music Revue, and the Senior Play, are but a few of the programs. The orchestra also played for the National P. T. A. Convention this year. -Charles Ford.

This year in- stead ot having an all-girl Drum and Bugle Corps, boys were added to increase the membership. Though not a large organization, every member Worked very hard to enter the contest on May 1. This year the Corps is lead by the never-tiring Drum Major, Adine Lothringer. l-lere's hoping the Brackenridge Drum and Bugle Corps will keep up the good spirit they have now and may they grow stronger every year. ln October of 1939, Mr. Zoeller organized the first high school accordion band. When tirst organized, it consisted ot about 13 members. Though this year's band is lacking in quantity, it is not lacking in quality. The group is made up ot some ot the best accordionists in Brackenridge. Under Mr. Zoeller's tine supervi- sion, they played a variety ot both popular and classical music, as Well as some stirring marches. At the beginning of the year Charles Ford was chosen to be the Student Leader. The accordion band has played for many civic bodies, clubs and organizations in San Antonio as Well as many programs and assemblies at Brackenridge. The accordion is taking its place in the bands and orchestras all over the country. 'Page 132 , - W I, . ,AW . .. . - The B.H.S. Band on Armistice Day. Pepping up the team at the Austin game.

With typically American snap and precision, the band draws the attention and admira- tion ot all onlookers as it steps oft down the tield to the strains ot a stirring march. Headed by Captain Billy Miller and under the direction ot our well-known director, Mr. Otto Zoeller, the band has a statt of seven otticers and contains approximately thirty-tive members. Presenting a picture of military discipline combined with musical ability that is an example to any band, the Braclcenridge B. O. T. C.

Henry W. Mabry, and under the able leadership of its Regimental Commanding Officer, Cadet Colonel Pat McKay, one of the greatest and most important organizations in Brackenridge, The United States Reserve Of- ficers' Training Corps, may indeed be proud ot the records established by it during this year. The R. O. T. C., whose importance was re-emphasized by the outbreak of the war, is unique in so far as it is not only a most instructive and highly valuable subject, but also provides most interesting opportunities of various nature for its members. Outstanding among the many occurrences of the year was the volunteering for the Ci- vilian Defense Corps of the entire Regiment, a fact which attracted the attention of out-of- town newspapers. Also, there are to be listed the Armistice and Army Day Parades, the re- view at which commissions were presented to the officers, the farewell review for Captain Mabry, and the annual Field Day, at which awards and presentations were made. Socially speaking, the Non-Com and Regimental Proms also deserve to be mentioned. -Herbert Iohn Spiro. Xu S- adam Pi Pa e 138 FALL TERM ALLENE ASZMANN ...,..... AUDREY CHIODO ,....,,..

With Miss Martin as our faculty sponsor, we have attained the goal we set out to accom- plish, friendship among ourselves and our fellow students. -Allene Aszmann, Cadet Colonel Sponsor, Top Row, left to right:-Aszmann, Chiodo, Orr, Burger, Baird, Bare. 2nd Row:-Bartelsg Bledsoe, Buckner, Byler, Casey, Chaney, Davis, M.

At the beginning of each school year, all of the most efficient cadets of the Brackenridge Reserve Officers' Training Corps compete for the honor of being members of the Purple Guard. Those selected constitute the best drilled unit in the regiment, under the immediate super- vision of the Regimental Commanding Officer. This year the Purple Guard achieved many outstanding feats under the command of Colonel Pat McKay. At the Open House Night it presented a special precision drill and was also represented by an Honor Guard at the Pilgrimage to the Alamo. The Purple Guard expects to conclude the year successfully with a competition drill with another high school of the city. -Herbert Iohn Spiro. Spmwu Seated:-W. Domangue, M.

Each Friday morning at 8:45 the Non Commissioned Officers' Club meets. At the begin- ning of each school term officers are elected and the amount of dues is voted on by the mem- bers. The president and vice president must be Master Sergeants, and the secretary and the treasurer must be First, Technical, or Staff Sergeants. The purpose of the Non-Com club is to prepare its members to take their places as commissioned officers in our R.O.T,C. unit and to provide a social outlet for them. Because of the change from Central Standard time to War Time, meetings were discontinued, and social activities have been few. Under the guidance of our Commandant, Sgt. H. W. Mabry, who has recently been called to active service as a Captain, the Non-Coms have done their part towards the betterment of our Regiment. -Ernest Baetz.

Today the R.O.T.C. is training the cadets in discipline, tactics, and strategy. The rifle team teaches its members to fire a rifle and gives them experience by practicing. Iust as in World War l, General Pershing needed efficient fighting men, so today we need true Americans to defend our country, homes, and freedom. ln this way the Brackenridge High School Rifle Team, under the able supervision of Sgt. Mabry, is helping America to win over the aggressive powers by develop- ing her boys in the handling of the basic infantry weapon-the rifle. -lack Anderson.

From tile general atmosphere we could almost believe ourselves in a football stadium cheering ttie Brack- enridge Eagles on to victory. An interesting nation ot ancient pyramicts, temples, beautiful parks, picturesque cities and customs, Mexico has a culture all its own ttlat proves fascinating to tile visitor. QM-Wise E412-IV' T77 PALS OF PLAY The Indian, descending from ancient Maya and Aztec triloes, clings to his primitive IIlCth0dS of cultivation of corn, coffee, sugar, and fruits on the hillside farms. The more progressive mestizo, of mixed Indian and white heritage, has introduced industry, manufacturing, and progressive reforms into tile Mexican civilization. Let us salute our Hamigosn from "south of the border" who have displayed their friendship through an increasing exchange of culture, students, and commodities between tile two nations.

Finishing fourth in the Border Olympics, the Brack- enridge cinder pounders an- nexed nine points. ln the Alamo Heights Invitation Track Meet the Eagles were led by galloping Tommy Tope as they racked up 40 points, placing second be- hind the Ieff Nags who had 53 points. Iames Strong and lack Daniels both turned in sparkling performances. Em- met Howe was spectacular because of the fact that he consistently broke the record in the mile run in every meet he entered. ,,......----- 1"""" Q. .xii sa, Looming large and favor- ably as they entered the City Meet the Eagle squad lashed out with astonishing and tell- ing effect. The Birds fell in line, however, behind the great running machine of the lefferson Mustangs as they finished second in this meet. Of notable importance this year was the lack of capable sprinters which was costly to the struggling Birds. Tommy Tope, however, proved his worth as a hustling hoofster by grab- bing three first places, the high and low hurdles and the high jump, enabling him to finish as individual high scorer. Charles Seidemann, Iohn Cullen, and Leslie Ger- mer were instrumental in the Eagles' gallant attempt to gain track supremacy. -Pat Maloney 8 fe ' TOP TRACK TEAM Ilzleift, Pgatt, I-lifcgldvegai seated: Smppenbqckl I3 P f Brackenridge dis- tance runners.

Boasting more honors and holding a greater number of records than any form of athletics in B.l-l.S. today is the swimming team. lt is indeed a most opportune time for this team to ascend from hiding to the highlights of a champion. This team is the only one in lnterscholastic history to ever win the State Championship two years in succession. lt might be added that this enviable record has been established in the last two years, that this is the only team to ever capture a state title in the history of the school. lay Alkire, Ed. Harding, Dick Westkaemper, Prank Scott, Rell Scott, lack Snipes, Richard Newman and lack Tolar, Ir., are the boys to whom credit is due. With an enviable record behind them and an excellent chance of adding to this auspi- cious record, the Brackenridge Eagles are well represented in the department of golf. Under the capable tutoring of Coach Sinclair and Coach Lehmberg the Eagle golfers have progressed along the road to golf supremacy. Robert Cavanaugh, Gilbert Cavanaugh, Paul A. Lockhart, Bobby Chestnut, and Harry Verberne are the boys who made the elite golfers' squad. Widely acclaimed and recognized as a beneficial interest to the school, the intramurals launched their varied campaign of sports with a great amount of success this year.

I X I, , Our cheerleaders, Katie Mae ir and Hallie, leading our mascots onto the drill field. Since 1927 those very busy little girls in White dresses and purple jackets have been an integral part of Brackenridge campus life. Organized for the purpose of being a help to the school and faculty, the Purple Iackets of 1942 have spent an active year living up to their club's standards and have done everything from helping teachers on registration day to filling Christmas baskets, buying toys for orphans, ushering at the annual Open l-louse, and signing up nearly one hundred per cent for defense jobs. Beginning With a Sing Song for future P.I.'s, the organization also staged a big round-up for old members, a theater party honoring the football boys, a skating party, a luncheon, and a big formal dinner dance at the Plaza Hotel as a farewell gesture to members leaving and a climax to a year of fun and service. .,4lz9hZz9A1f4 an We're off.

Remember those mornings of drills to perfect the performance for the Week-end game? Then who could forget the exciting moments when the Eagles upset Tivy, when We Went on that eventful Halloween special train to Austin Where We presented our "Skeleton-Dance" and tumbling acts, and, above all, when We won the Turkey-Day game over Iefferson. That was the time We put our best foot forward in co-operation with the R.O.T.C. officers and sponsors in present- ing a formation covering the Whole field. While the Purple Iackets formed a huge heart, a banner reading "God Bless America" Was carried across the field led by three P.I.'s depicting Uncle Sam, the American Eagle, and the goddess of liberty. Yes, those are gems in our memories of Brackenridge. any. mascot Annette Selcher Y 4 Some tormts!!! Time out. Strike!!! lt's the Indian in them. The program of activities in the Girls' Physical Education Department is a varied and in- teresting one. The team sports Whichprove favorites for all are baseball, volley ball, and Captain Ball, and the individual activities in which they participate are golt, archery, tennis, tumbling and rhythmics. The classes are organized so that each class spends three Weeks at each activity and has six activities each term. This frequent changing ot activities makes it possible for every girl to develop her individual interests. On days when there are assemblies and the periods are shortened, or when the Weather is too bad to go out-ot-doors the girls gather in the gym and engage in social dancing to the accompaniment of the nickelodeon. This always proves a popular activity. The girls in the Physical Education IV Class, all oi Whom are advanced students, have developed an interest in handball during the spring term. Mrs. Lord teaches this group, also sharing their enthusiasm in the new activity. 'W' P ffm! Each term a class in Special Physical Education is offered for those girls who are not physically able to participate in the regular classes. During the tall term Miss Rector taught this class and the girls played badminton, paddle tennis, Croquet, golf, archery, and darts. Miss Martin has taught the class during the spring term in Which the girls have studied First Aid. Near the end of the tall term all of the girls in the Physical Education classes were given an opportunity to volunteer for Civilian Defense. Among the special groups for which they registered were Nurses' Aid Corps, Messenger Service, and Emergency Food and Housing Corps. The girls' response to this call was commendable, and many are now being trained in some phase of the Work. E Fore! Betty Lou Stolte takes a turn at golf. That's pretty good form, Bettyl These girls might be "trucking," or then they might be doing an Indian war dance, or then they might be-oh, well, your guess is as good as ours.

Lilie- wise, after attending classes all day, the B. H. S. students turn their thoughts to the many social activities provided as an integral part of the modern high school. Club, class and all-school dances celebrate festive occasions, while picnics, banquets, luncheons, teas, sing-songs, and plays, not to mention pep rallies, parades, and athletic events are popular with the student body. These activities are characterized hy the ldemocratic and friendly atmosphere for which Braclcenridge is well- nown. Our South American neighbors, th folk enjoy the history, customs, and l compesinos, or country- and art of their mixed Spanish and Indian ancestors, free from influence.

On the large estates, or hacienclas, the principal products of wheat, grains, potatoes, and fruits, especially grapes, are cultivated and harvested in ahundance. Surrounding the tranquil green valleys are the snow peaks of the mighty Andes Where the Worlds largest production of copper is mined along with gold, silver, manganese, and coal. Under the soil of the Chilean deserts are the deposits of the Hwhite gold" of nitrate, essential to the manufacture of explosives and fertilizer. Ninety-five percent of the Worlds supply was produced here before the discovery of synthetic nitrates. Vvith a three-thousand mile coastline, Chile is also a nation of sea- ports and sea-faring people. Santiago, the capital, with one-fourth of the countryss population, and Valparaiso, the chief seaport, are pic- turesque cities combining the old and new cultures of the country. A notahte feature of this nation's custom is the active part the Women play in Chilean life, displaying more freedom than any other Spanish- American women. The progressive government, valuable products, and fine educational system emphasizing exchange of students with our nation, make Chile deserving of the friendship and good-will existing hetween the two Hgood- neighhorsf, Chile and the United Statesjm. 1-TEST IVE FELLCWSI-IIP l.
